The insights encapsulated in this gem are refractory. Alex's enlightenment shines from within the gentle critique of treatment. And his spontaneous observation that diagnosis and treatment are defined behaviorally yet takes place deep within an immeasurable core transformation of any individual from inside to out, has stuck with me since originally perusing. The author has a diamond mined here.
